Byond ID: ThatInsaneGuy

Colonial Marines Character: Brendan "Maniac" Riley

Age: 18

Gender: M

Timezone: PDT

On average, how many hours are you available per week to moderate? 20+ I'm on my computer alot.

Do you have any previous experience in being staff (not just SS13)?
Workforce: Instructor, lifeguard
Ran a server with a friend as a Head Dev/Head Admin combo and was an Admin on another long lost server rest in peace Nox.

Did you play any of the previous Colonial Marine servers? I don't know if it counts, but when the Sulaco was a thing? I've been playing on this server for about a year to a year and a half now now.

What are the 3 biggest servers you play on besides CM? I don't actually play any other servers other than CM. When I used to run a server with my friends we got 15-20 people, but its since closed down and CM is all I seem to want to play on BYOND

Provide links to any previous Colonial Marines applications that you've made:
http://colonial-marines.com/viewtopic.php?f=127&t=13256

Are you currently a staff member elsewhere (not just SS13)? If so, where? N/A

Have you ever been banned for more than 24 hours on Colonial Marines? No I have not. I do however have a few notes about me arguing to try to bend the rules a bit to allow for some IC shenanigans, but that was quickly shut down by mods and I received word not to do so anymore. And I have not since.

Have you ever been banned for more than 24 hours on ANY server? If so, which server, when, and what for? N/A

Are you familiar with the chat program Slack (its use is required)? No I am not, but I'm quick and eager to learn.

Common Staff Situations:
Write a description of what you would do in each of the following situations. Do not write on the same line as the situation - use the space below it or make space as needed. Failure to do this proves your inability to follow instructions and your application will be automatically denied.

1. A player randomly shoots someone at round start and MPs have detained him.
Well first comes the question of why. Was there a reason/motive behind it and did he kill the victim of the shooting. Then comes how it's being handled IC. If the player (lets just label him shooter, and the victim - victim) is gibbering about baldies and breaking character ruining immersion (MAH IMMURSION) for the MP's then I'd remove him from the round and possibly deliver a ban depending on number of offenses and such. If shooter has found an IC reason to commit this crime but it is weak/not a good reason, deliver a warning and let him set out the rest of the round in brig. To me my decision of what to do purely remains on their reason for doing so and number of offenses. So after that convoluted blurb.
Step A : Figure out the reason behind their action, VIA PM.
Step B : Determine punishment for shooter
Step C : Ask another staff's opinion on selected punishment as to not be unfair
Step D : Deliver punishment to shooter
Step E: Revive victim if needed (usually docs are pretty damn good about it and revive them)

2. The ship has a breach to space and a bunch of players have died or are dying as a result.
Same as above. Finding out the reason for this issue is key. If the reason is due to grief such as a welderbomb then repair the hole and revive dead/dying players after dealing justice to the offender. However, if it is during the alien invasion of the Alameyer and it is an act of self defense/suicide as to not let the aliens kill them and all players have gone into that room to get thrown into space then leave it be. It all sits around the circumstance of the cause of the breach and IC it is.

3. You see a player walking around the ship naked and clearly lost.
PM them and ask if they are lost. If they are, assist and provide a link to the wiki due to the fact that they're most likely a new person to the server.

4. A player is being very rude to you in Adminhelps and requesting to speak to an Admin+ staff member.
Keep calm and maintain a polite tone with said rude person. If Admin+ is on then contact them that said player is wanting to talk with them and mention their rudeness. Otherwise remind politely that if they're a raging cockgoblin, a ban is coming (favorite line in the rules, sorry :P). Always remember that you are basically customer service and even in the face of being yelled at just smile and wave.

5. You notice a player with a name that doesn't fit our naming rules. The player is arguing that: They've used the name for several years, no one has told them to change it before, and that they didn't know it was a rule.
What they've had on different servers is different than that of CM. Ask them to read the Marine rule 2 and ask them what they'd like to have the name changed to. Change the name to something more fitting that they have agreed upon. If they don't wish to change their name and become upset with you, talk with another staff member and decide whether or not to remove them from the round.

6. You see a Maintenance Tech running around in armor and carrying a rifle. The security level is green with no threat present.
IC reasons for having that better be damn good. If not then PM them that they have no reason to be carrying such and it is violating a rule about powergaming (I'd hazard a guess they're wearing that for the encounter of aliens on the ship). Kindly ask them to remove the armor and rifle and return them to where they were found.

7. You see a Squad Medic performing surgery on the planet. He claims it was because there were no doctors in the FOB.
Only doctors, researchers and the CMO are allowed/have the knowledge to perform surgeries. Give them a warning on powergaming (rule 8) and have them cease their actions at once.

8. The round is stagnating. There are 30 marines and 4 aliens. The marines won't leave the ship, and the aliens won't attack. What would you do, to "encourage" the sides to engage each other?
Contact the leader of either the aliens or the marines or both and decide what to do. Who knows, it could end in an awesome event. (remembering 9/5/17 I think when the Sulaco showed up and launched pods onto the Alameyer filled with aliens) Usually before doing that though, providing an ARES scan will encourage the marines to go back planetside to crush the remaining aliens.

9. The round ends, a MARINE starts shooting a hostile IRON BEAR and the IRON BEAR Adminhelps complaining he was killed after the round ended.
Kindly send them the link to the server rules and tell them to look at rule 7. No EORG but if fighting persists via Marine vs IRON BEARS or Marines vs Aliens then it is permitted.

10. A marine is running around disarming, punching and stealing gear at round start.
It'll be handled IC. As long as he's RPing it. If he's running around generally being a dick PM him and kindly remind him of the rules and give him a warning. If it persists, discuss with other staff members and possibly provide a ban if the chaos created is immense.

11. A marine has killed another marine. When you ask him why, he said it was because the other marine had punched him.
Not proper escalation and even with proper escalation, no killing other humans unless in self defense. Provide warning/ban and revive the dead marine. Have him clear his memory of the event and any witness, and remove the marine from the round.

12. An issue arises that requires Admin+ abilities.
Contact another admin on Slack and maintain order while said admin arrives.

13. There are minor racist comments going on IC. 9 of the 10 people are laughing and RPing but one player gets offended and Adminhelps about it.
Occasionally being a racist is okay but only if it is done IC and is well RPed. If the person offended Ahelps it, tell them that they can just avoid the racist comments by going away from the other 9 marines. If the racism is directed towards that 10th person and they truly feel offended by it, ask them to kindly knock it off

14. A marine opens fire at round start in briefing killing multiple marines and instantly logs off.
PermaBan the Ckey of the marine and revive everyone. Have them all pretend it never happened and remove all traces of the offender, body, gun, everything. (Men in Black that crime scene)

15. You see a player playing a xeno larva/chestburster run towards the frontlines and die.
PM them and remind them of rule 11. Issue a warning/set up a note on them. If they repeatedly do this, warn them a job ban could be imminent.

16. You see a xeno memeing, saying AYYLMAO, REEEEEE etc in hivemind chat.
PM them and remind them of rule one of playing a xenomorph is to act like a xenomorph. The Alien movies would have been a whole hell of a lot less scary if all the xeno's danced around going "AYYLMAO, REEEEEE". Issue a warning if necessary.

17. A xeno player calls the shuttle a "dropship". A different xeno player complains to you that it's metagaming/failRP to call it a "dropship".
PM the xeno player calling it a dropship and link them the xeno specific rules and point out rule 1. Mention that he must act like a xenomorph if he is playing like one. No dropship today buddy, that's a metal bird you're talkin' bout.

18. A Command staff player at briefing near round-start mentions there are aliens on the planet.
PM them and tell them that it is powergaming/metagaming to "know" there are aliens on the planet. Deliver an OOC message that marines should forget anything about knowing about aliens on the planet. Issue a warning to the officer, or if it is a multiple offender, converse with other admins on if the offender should be job banned for doing so if no other admins are on and notes are saying he has done if before, provide him with a job ban.

19. A Marine kills another Marine on the EVAC Pod to take the last spot and claims it was RP as he was saving himself.
Marines are not supposed to EVAC in the first place as they'll be executed when recovered by high command. So mention that and if it was pure blooded murder, give them a warning. Revive the dead marine bring them to the arena and have them fight to the deat-.... I mean add it to his notes that he's broken the first marine specific rule and deliver a ban if needed.

20. You see a fellow staff member give wrong information in an Adminhelp or incorrectly enforcing a rule.
Kindly provide feedback that the rule has been wrongly enforced/info given was wrong and give the correct info or remind them what the rule is (if they happen to forget of course) If they're incorrectly enforcing a rule to favor themselves/continue to enforce a rule incorrectly then it becomes abuse and that goes to 20a.

20a. You see a fellow staff member abusing his powers in-game.
Warn abusing staff member not to do so as all actions can be tracked through the logs and he'll lose his rank as an admin on CM not to mention abusing powers ruins the game for all. If they agree to stop then ask them to rectify anything they may have changed. If they do not agree to stop contact Admin+/ Higher staff level than I and explain the problem.

21. You see a player talking in OOC chat about what he did with your mom last night.
HOW DARE HE. Just kidding. If it is directed towards me, calmly warn him that ERP is not allowed and any sexual terms should not be used. In my case, I'd calmly state that there'd be no way he could do such acts as I just recently spread my mothers ashes a week ago in Wales and that would be nasty. If OOC continues, mute his OOC permissions and PM him the reason why.

Any additional information you'd like to add? Upon creating my forum account a long time ago I could not remember if my CKey was ThatInsaneGuy or ThatInsan3Guy as I use both. Sadly I chose the wrong one and my forum account name is ThatInsan3Guy instead of what it should be which is ThatInsaneGuy. Sorry for the mixup, reaaaally hoping that doesn't bar me from becoming mod if the chance arises.

Hello ThatInsaneGuy,

I have a few questions or comments regarding your answers to the provided situations in your app.

2. Are you sure blowing up a hole int the hull of the ship to commit suicide doesn't break a rule?
5. What if they've been using the name on this very server without any trouble? How would you "remove them from the round"?
6. Isn't this an IC issue?
8. You can't do events as a mod.
11. "no killing other humans unless in self defense" - Where does it say so in the rules?
14. Would you file a permaban even if the guy has no notes?
15. How many times would you think you should let a player waste a xeno slot by suiciding as larva before giving them a jobban?
17. Rule 1 of xenomorphs : "Act like a Xenomorph - You are not a pet or best friends with the marines. Talk like one. It is fine to use words like "medbay" and "shuttle". You can also replace "shuttle" with "metal bird" if you wish. Hivemind is the English translation of a Xeno's thoughts. However, keep it formal and realistic. An occasional meme is fine, but spouting memes constantly or disrupting others with them is not allowed and you will be warned." You sure about your answer?
19. "Marines are not supposed to EVAC in the first place as they'll be executed when recovered by high command" - How do you know? Isn't this situation valuable, realistic RP? What rule did the shooter break exactly?
20.a So if the staffmember agrees to stop after you tell him to stop, you won't warn any of the higher ups about the situation, correct?

How many already accepted mod applications did you read before writing this one?

You seem to be in the right mindset to become a moderator... but some of your answers show a misunderstanding or ignorance of some rules. Which is concerning considering you had all the time in the world to write these answers and check them.

How would you deal with the following situations?
The CMO ahelps that after he insulted the CMP, an MP wordlessly tazed him and brigged him for disrespect to a superior. Logs confirm his story.
The same CMO was released, and ahelps he's going to poison or kidnap the MP as RP to teach him how to follow marine law properly.

Neutral for the time being. Thank you for reading.
Player PM from player/(Larva (247)) (?): It's totally realistic to challenge someone to do boxing for a mouse trap, in the middle of a alien occupation.
AHELP: Player/(Player) : HELP HELP HELP I SAWED SOMEOEN HEAD OFF! I DIDNT MEAN TOO

Ah, alright. I see I've misunderstood a few things then.
2) Counts as grief seeing as the atmos system is not the best so any damage to the ship resulting in a hull breach would instantly fuck any and all marines still left on the ship regardless. So ban for grief and repair the damage caused. Revive any marines thrown into space and Men in Black it so they don't remember anything.
5) I thought originally it meant they used it among other stations and never had trouble with it. Now I see that you meant on CM. Ask them to change it as it is still breaking the rules, and remind them that for as long as they have been playing on the server, they should have at least read the rules once and understood them.
6) Upon reading this question I thought that it was more powergaming than anything and that the IC response from the crew would not be coming for a while. At least when I play MT's I avoid human contact as much as possible. But yes, it would be handled IC when discovered, so my apologies for misreading the situation.
8) True true, hadn't thought of that. So as an actual response, just have the ARES scan to make the marines want to go back to the planet, or make an OOC announcement about how they all are prolonging the round (only if the round is going 2 and a half hours plus.
11) Ah, in my eyes, self defense ties in with Marine rule 1, and so I viewed it as self defense being a reasonable reason for fighting back. While executing another marine is a bit excessive, maybe the IC self defense went wrong. Anyways that's how I viewed it.
14) Checking the logs should show the combat logs and the Ckey behind it hence why you could file a permaban. I don't know if mods have access to those logs, but I assume as much in order to help secure the server better.
15) Twice. First time they get a warning telling them to never do it again and that they'll be job banned if so and a note added saying that as well. The second time is the job ban.
17) Upon bringing it up, no I'm not. I'd like to retract my statement and change it to telling the person who is crying over fail RP that an occasional mix up will always happen and there will always be cases of stating something as you'd say it as a human.
19) Well it was more of from playing CM that whenever the aliens invaded the commander would scream about any marine trying to escape would be executed when their pods were recovered by high command. My bad, thought that was an actual lore thing. He mostly just broke rule 1 of marine rules, but he wouldn't be subject to a ban or anything since there was actual IC buildup to that moment. It'd be completely understandable if the other marine he shot was trying to bar him from the pods, but he'd be using excessive force if he plain just killed the guy instead of maybe shooting him once or twice getting him downed and then running away to the pod.
20) My apologies, my previous draft seems to be what posted instead of my revised ones. I was going through my own old staff rules just to check up on everything. No, the abuse would still be reported to the higher ups, and the decision on what to do to the offender would be left to them.

For your hypothesized events:
CMO: As the CMO is not part of the chain of command and is a civilian, the WO is techically a higher rank than he. So the CMO would be in the wrong here and would be messaged that it's being handled IC and the WO is right.
CMO wanting revenge: *sigh* I've had this conversations with mods before. The CMO is completely in the wrong. Yeah he can hold a bit of a grudge against the WO but in the end, there is no harm coming to the WO from the CMO unless the WO was trying to kill him or something. And even then... no. There will be no revenge against players that will cost them the round. As a good old Admin command once said "Man Up and Deal With It".

Thank you so much for your response Tharinoma. I really value your feedback and thank you truly for pointing out some of the weak points in my application. And while I did have all the time in the world to read other people's applications and such, I did not, as I wanted to have an unbiased view/application that is honestly what I would do in this position. My actual responses to a REAL situation, as I'd be there spectating what actually went down so I'd have a full view of the situation, would be based on good judgement and would be thoroughly checked with other staff until I have a full understanding of being a moderator on a 150+ person server. Thank you for reading, have a wonderful day!

I'll be focusing mainly on some of the problems.

4) "Always remember that you are basically customer service and even in the face of being yelled at just smile and wave." - This answer isn't bad, but we're not customer service workers. We're volunteers and if someone is going to be rude to you, most of the time you have valid grounds to give them a warning to knock it off or there will be repercussions. You're not going to lose your job for telling someone not to act entitled over you.

15) "PM them and remind them of rule 11. Issue a warning/set up a note on them. If they repeatedly do this, warn them a job ban could be imminent." - Before you just PM someone, you should try to figure out if it's actually stupid plays or an unfortunate place to burst as a larva.

17 was wrong, but you fixed it. Just remember that Xeno speech is just Xeno to English. While it's nice to add Xeno flavours for RP, it's not required.

19) There is no rule against Marines using the pods. Anyone can use them for any reason. Assuming there was enough of a warning/build up as well, they'd be justified killing them under IC actions. Pod spots are made to be in short supply so if he knew he'd die on that ship and there is one spot left, he can take that shot to save himself, but there should at least be a warning given and not just opening fire on sight.

20a) While this isn't really wrong, it's not really your job to be ordering around other staff, breaking the rules or not. You should just report it and leave it at that instead of getting involved and most likely fighting over if they think they're abusing their powers.

Overall the answers aren't bad, you could pass off these answers and you're responding to other questions.

As with every application, I'll be the one to bring up you need to be more active on the forums if you get accepted. One last thing as well, how often are you playing on the server currently? I just need a rough days-per-week number. I'll say if I support the application in a future reply. Good work so far, however.

I play almost every day for a few hours. Sometimes I'll just sit and observe too. Maybe 3-5 hours every day 7 days a week?

Just helps make our job a little easier when we look up how often you log onto the server. This isn't like part of the test or anything, we just need to make sure you've actually been on the server recently.

► Show Spoiler
As mentioned above you have a good mindset but seem to have some misunderstandings about the rules in some areas, so I'd say I'm neutral on your app overall with the possibility of a +1. Personally what I would have liked to see in this application is more mentioning of notes, because of how essential they are to rule enforcement.

On a side note, I lost my mom in 2013 and definitely feel for you. It's a pain that takes a long time to go away, and tends to crop back up every now and then even years after the fact.

I'll leave the questions about the questions/answers to the other mods, but this app is decent and the kinks can be hammered out

and as a heads up I'll be throwing up two hypotheticals here, soon.

I'll leave the questions about the questions/answers to the other mods, but this app is decent and the kinks can be hammered out

and as a heads up I'll be throwing up two hypotheticals here, soon.
Sounds good. Hit me with your best shot :P

I've given the application a once over and I'm somewhat on the fence so I'd have to remain neutral for now.

I feel as though while you've given the rules some time to consider, though you're perhaps a little eager to get involved with situations that may not need any direct intervention.

I do have a question or two of my own actually, I would like to know how you'd handle these situations?

1) A marine is being operated on and the doctor performing the surgery walks out of surgery, before he returns to the room he's arrested for carrying a gun in med bay. The marine is left on the table for a couple of minutes before he begins to die from infected wounds, he ahelps the situation.

2) The CE takes great care in deconstructing a wall and building an observatory on the outside of the Alamayer, though he inadvertently creates an atmos issue in a room that marines are protecting.

There may seem to be a little redundancy in these questions perhaps but I'm just interested to see how you'd deal with these two situations.

Thanks for your response to begin!

1) First off, you say beginning to die. So he hasn't died yet right? Going off from that point, I feel as though it'd be more IC than anything. You wouldn't need to get involved unless said marine who died was murdered in cold blood. Sadly nothing can really be done as long as the arrest of the doctor was carried out for good RP reasons and the reasons that the marine was being operated on was for good reasons. (Like broken bones and such, not the doctor cutting him open just to see whats inside sort of deal) Depending on the length of the imprisonment (shouldn't be excessive unless the doctor is a known criminal and gets perma'd) By the time the doctor is out he'd be rushing back to his patient and either reviving him or stabilizing him. And if said marine dies on the table, there's at least going to be one other doctor doing surgeries (or at least should be) and I doubt he'd let a dead marine just sit on the table without giving him some medical attention. So all in all what I'm trying to say is that it's more an IC issue than anything and doesn't need mod/admin intervention

2) Unless the CE is PMing us asking if he can do such, he's not permitted to, and even then I HEAVILY doubt any mod/admin would allow him to do such. I read somewhere in the rules (Rule 12 to be exact) that there is to be no atmos fuckery. So if he's playing CE he'd have to have read the damn rules at least once. From there it becomes either a "heavy ban" or a permaban. Before doing such I'd fix the hole in the ship and fix the atmos problems after stopping the CE from creating more damage then deal with him.

All in all these were pretty good questions. Made me think quite a bit. I like these sort of questions that vary from what you ask everyone else as they allow me to demonstrate my mentality and reasoning. Thanks for taking time out of your day to write me a response! Have a wonderful day!

Been a little slow, hurricane and all, but I think you'll make it. Judgement day is coming up soon. I'll help judge your answers for those questions there.

1. This would just be IC. Even if they somehow died and no one even saw them in need of a defib (which would never happen because if you've ever seen the medical bay the OR are always packed so no one is going to miss it), it would all still happen through IC events and while it may suck for that one guy, just going to have to take it this round.

2. Something like this has happened before, due to the fact we had a faulty hull wall. You won't need to perma ban over this or really even place a heavy ban (unless all hell breaks loose from it) but you do you want to take some action depending what happens later in. In the case the Marines are defending this room, they're all going to count as "Out of the map" so the round would end when no other marines were on the ship. If the Xeno are already pushing inside then just let them all die. If you can, make a LOOC or an OOC announcement for everyone to get out of the room and just admin wall it up. As for punishments, if you catch it early on you should just give them a warning. If this somehow messes up the round, you can apply a ban following normal escalation. This is a no-no, but it's something that should not even be able to happen in the first place.

Overall, I think you have what it takes to be a mod so I'm going to place a +1. Best of luck and hope to see you in slack soon.

I'm a little late getting back to this one but I do like your answers, I'm happy moving from neutral to +1 on this one. I think that any questions you have could be ironed out in the trial phase.

This is accepted. I apologize for the delay, I've been without power due to the hurricane for the last week.
